The World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW) is a global campaign carried out every year which aims to increase awareness and understanding of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and to encourage best practices to avoid the further emergence and spread of AMR worldwide.
The World Organization for Animal health (OIE), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and the World Health Organization (WHO) promote the WAAW campaign under the concept of ”One Health”, highlighting the interdependence between animal health, human health and the environment.
Through this approach and in the framework of the tripartite project “Working Together to Fight Antimicrobial Resistance”, the OIE has supported the Veterinary Services of the 7 participating countries (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay) in the development and communication of the WAAW’s key messages.
